The sale of the Darwin branch was effective August 1 while the new Adelaide operation will commence on September 1 this year.
Cargotec says the strategy behind this decision is to improve business efficiency and strengthen customer service to its load handling customers in both Darwin and Adelaide.
RGM is an Australian owned company that specialises in through life support of the Australian military vehicle fleet. Using only OEM parts and certified ISO9001:2008, the company prides itself on providing expert guidance and consistent high quality and value for money service.
RGM currently has three facilities around Australia at Brisbane, Townsville and Darwin in addition to a field service site at Katherine in the Northern Territory. The company employs a national staff of 55, consisting of a highly experienced contingent of qualified and certified providers of mechanical solutions, particularly to the defence industry.
The Darwin branch will initially continue to operate at the current site at Yarrawonga but will in due course be integrated into RGM’s state-of-the-art facility at Winnellie. The Adelaide business will continue to operate at Cargotec’s current site in Wingfield.
Sales for load handling equipment will be retained by Cargotec Australia.
The company says it is confident this new partnership will further strengthen the service offering to its load handling customers, providing them with access to some of the highest quality service facilities in Australia and a network of highly skilled and technically competent service professionals.
Telephone numbers at both sites remain the same.
